Can We Come Together?

Can We Come Together (In Jesus’ Name)?


 


If we were to meet… 


What would be your expectation?


What would be your thoughts…


 Without knowing my situation?


 


If I were there to greet you at church…


 What would you say?


Would you welcome me?


 Or look the other way?


 


If I had some kind of need…


What would your reaction be?


What kind of thoughts would you have…


 In helping me?


 


Could you be Christ’ example,


 and love me the same?


Is there something about me


 that would case you to complain?


 


Could you do more than a handshake and a smile?


Would you be willing…  To go “the extra mile?”


 


Are you someone on whom


I can surely depend?


Would you be willing to simply be…


 My friend?


 


Can we come together


and pray to God above?


May our lives, together,


be bound by HIS love…


 


Let’s come together, and our hearts be as one.


In praise and honor to Jesus Christ…  God’s son!!!


 


I look forward to meeting you!


 Hallelujah and amen!


I can’t wait until our paths cross again!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
